My Chorale Setting of "L'homme arme"
Date: March 11, 2014
Yesterday and today, I composed a chorale setting of of "L'homme armé", a tenor melody/chant from a 15th century chanson (French secular song).
Please let me know what you think. Ever since I first learned of it in my History of Western Music I course, I've wanted to compose a chorale version of it. So that the original melody is recognizable, I have all parts sing a part of the original 15th century tenor melody for the first four measures.
Please let me know what you think. I have a few more things to work out with my part-writing, but I love FEEDBACK. Here is the link: https://soundcloud.com/ocie-shaquan-banks/lhomme-arm.
Thank you so much.
